  1. Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

  2. Fun Post: Best and Craziest Backup Plans

    Ahh this is such a relevant thread right now.. I think everyone in my life would be disappointed if I didn't try again so... best: work in a lab for a year or two with an extraneous part-time job since LA is crazy expensive and re-apply craziest: drop everything, become a flight attendant and get excellent benefits while flying to all of my pintrest- dream countries/islands! My friend has made it so lucrative honestly shell be making more than I will if I go to PhD at least for the next 5 to 8 years hahaha
  3. Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    ahhh I'm so bummed! I was waiting on learn&behav. area to get back to me...I feel like they must have gone out already then. Congratulations! good luck!! ....ACTUALLY just called the department so I am not out of luck yet! For all of you still looking into UCLA some of their areas won't be sending out invitations till mid january because the interviews will be in feb.!
  4. PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    I think its different for every school: some departments do it all at once and some I have found send out at different times depending on the area within the department. Im trying to not get down until after the holidays, you never know what can happen!
  5. PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    I have checked my emails every 30 minutes since like the 17th. Might be neuroticism, but maybe I should add it as a skill to my CV for next year. @nicokren I made a mistake on that app, as was a unique format for sure.
  6. Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    Ya, I felt like I had to just laugh it off. I don't have too much faith in myself getting in there or into Berkeley but I gotta try..especially with that awful switch right near the deadline I thought at least some applicants may be discouraged and I'd have a better chance! hahah wishful thinking... also congrats on UC Davis! I'll see you there if its the one at the end of January pm me if you wanna bounce ideas or talk about the program!!
  7. Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    Ya I just woke up to an email from frustrating all it said "your application has been received" it looks like they are still getting their bearings after the change in apps.
  8. Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    I know some heard for quant from Davis and I heard for bio-psych but I know we received them on different days and from different coordinators so you may still have a couple days before you hear!
  9. Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    Ya, you are probably right that its the same across the ex. psych. department. Well good luck to you!!! I'm sure the Skype interview only helps! This week will be a longggg one for us all I'm sure hahah
  10. Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    Good luck to you too! Its hard to gauge yet..and same about the research..ahhhhh I hate this
  11. Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    do you think if UCSD sent out their pre-interviews that if you didn't get one of those that you won't be hearing for the official interview? very nervous...

    Maybe I shouldn't generalize but I do believe most schools around here (CA) take a few weeks after submission? I would still be hopeful. Your Masters experience is impressive..
  13. PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    That is actually shocking to me but don't worry yet you have plenty of other schools and I seriously still think you have nothing to worry about. If you are applying to UC Davis my POI just told me they will be sending their invites in the next few week so its still to early to doubt yourself!!
  14. PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    My have nothing to worry about..your masters experience Im sure will speak volumes to the committees!
  15. PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    Hi! I'm new here.. although i have been reading forums for months I finally made an account because the freak-outs have begun... Applying for: Behavioral Neuro Biggest worry: low GRE, no pubs confident: high GPA, 2 years of research, UMASS MED summer program, 3 labs (all LORS too), CV unsure: statements (refusing to reread) It's nice to meet you all in this boat... so with the PI's emailing for UCSD (even though its still prelim interviews) Im worried that I won't get a prelim if they have already sent them!
